Derek Jeter had to be removed from Game Three of the New York Yankees division series victory over the Baltimore Orioles.  He left in the eighth inning after striking out and apparently re-aggravating the bone bruise that has been bothering him for weeks now.  However, he was able to play in Game Four, and last night he showed no ill-effects as the Yankees took down the Orioles and advanced to the American League Championship Series. According to Benjamin Hoffman of the New York Times, the Yankees' skipper, Joe Girardi, chose to put Jeter back at shortstop for the decisive Game Five after seeing the Yankee captain run uninhibited in Game Four.  It was a good decision as Jeter continued to show no signs of the injury and scored the game's second run. Jeter went 0-for-3 with a walk in Game Five but scored on a Ichiro Suzuki double.  Running hard from first base, Jeter showed no signs of the injury that forced him to be the team's designated hitter a career-high 25 times this season.  He cruised around the bases without a hint of a limp.  It was a good sign for the Yankees and Derek Jeter. The run, while not necessarily the difference in the game since the Yankees would tack on one more and win 3-1, was important at the time.  New York was leading 1-0 and Baltimore was still very much within striking distance.  The second run of the game provided insurance. Jeter, despite concerns about the bone bruise, has continued his hot-hitting.  His success from the regular season appears to have carried over into the playoffs.  Jeter is hitting .364/.391/.500 in this year's postseason.
